Attractive Market Opportunities in the Dust Suppressant Market by 2028

Future Market Insights

Dust Suppressant Market: Introduction

Dust suppressant chemicals are used to control dust in places such as roads, the cement industry and the mining industry. They can range from water to palliative materials including saline solutions based on magnesium chloride (MgCl2), calcium chloride (CaCl2) and sodium chloride (NaCl). Also, asphalt emulsions and lignin, as well as plant oils and natural clays may also be used as dust suppressant materials. Chloride-based dust suppressants are the most commonly used dust controllers; however, water is also commonly used as a dust suppressant. Water is used as a temporary dust suppressant on roads and building construction sites as well as gravel pits and quarries. However, water must be applied regularly to maintain adequate moisture as it is moisture that binds fine particles to prevent dust. Other than water, the two commonly used dust suppressants are magnesium chloride and calcium chloride, which are hygroscopic in nature. Dust suppressant materials are generally hygroscopic, which absorb moisture from air and allow small dust particles to combine and increase in size, making them less prone to become airborne.

The dust suppressant is generally added to water and sprayed through a sprinkler. Dust suppressants aid in controlling dust at the time of loading, unloading, transferring and belt conveying, stack-out, crushing, reclaiming and other critical operations at locations. Dust suppressants increase the surface area of the water droplet, enabling it to cover more area, thereby preventing dust to become airborne. They also carry an ionic charge that aids to attract dust molecules as well as repel water droplets, facilitating a better spread to the sprayed water to cover more area.

Dust Suppressant Market: Dynamics

The global dust suppressant market is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period. Increasing awareness related to dust suppressant chemicals in manufacturing and mining industries as well as growth in investments in civil infrastructure are some of the crucial aspects influencing the global dust suppressant market positively. Dust can raise numerous challenges such as harmful effects on health. Apart from health, cross-contamination and dust reclamation are the other challenges boosting the demand for dust suppressants in various industries. As dust suppressants are crucial to industries such as cement, construction and mining, the growth of these end-use industries is expected to drive the growth of the dust suppressant market.

However, dust suppressant operations are labour-oriented tasks and a shortage of skilled labour and low awareness among the general population are anticipated to restrain the growth of the global dust suppressant market. Despite these challenges, the current trend to use new and better technologies for superior results is expected to surge the demand for global dust suppressants over the forecast period.
